Knitting

I recently finished reading [The friday night knitting club](http://www.fridaynightknittingclub.com/) for the second time since Christmas – not something I do very often with a book, but I really enjoyed it. Interestingly opinions seem to be divided over at [Amazon](http://www.amazon.co.uk/Friday-Night-Knitting-Club/dp/customer-reviews/0340922192/ref=cm_cr_dp_all_helpful?ie=UTF8&customer-reviews.sort%5Fby=-SubmissionDate&coliid=&showViewpoints=1&customer-reviews.start=1&qid=1204046808&sr=8-1&colid=#customerReviews) – so I guess read it and see or wait for the up coming [film](http://www.fridaynightknittingclub.com/) with Julia Roberts (who knits in real life) playing the lead character Georgia.

I for one was inspired to pick up some needles after 18 years and re-learn to knit:

and I have to say, so far, I’m doing a lot better than the square I knitted when I was in Guides – it was a holey mis-shapen thing, that my family have not let me forget!!

I’m starting simple and making a (quite wide!) scarf in garter stitch..
What do you think so far? Would I be able to hold my head up in a knitting circle??

  1. My current–and only- knitting project looks much the same, except in camo greens. And my husband appreciates the holes, lumps and decreasing increases :} as the scarf, whenever it’s done, will have been made with love–over a period of 3 years :}
